The party hasn't adequately digested the meaning - and the potential catastrophic consequences - of losing an Hispanic voice.
We, the Newark Board of Education, are thrilled to announce Technology High School’s recognition as a 2023 National Blue Ribbon School, which is a highly esteemed honor awarded by the U.S. Department of Education. This prestigious designation celebrates Technology High School's commitment to academic excellence, innovative teaching practices, and exceptional student performance.
I applaud Technology High School's dedication to creating a nurturing and intellectually stimulating environment, which has earned the school this esteemed accolade. I am extremely proud of Principal Reyes, the school’s administration, teachers, and staff for their commitment, unwavering dedication, and tireless efforts in supporting and inspiring our students. The students at Technology High School and their families are an example of the greatness of Newark!
The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program, established in 1982, recognizes schools that demonstrate exemplary academic achievements and provide outstanding educational experiences to students. In order to qualify for this prestigious recognition, schools must demonstrate significant academic progress and achievement. Additionally, they must exhibit excellence in teaching and leadership, and show a strong commitment to improving education outcomes for all students.

I participated in Read Across America at Dr. William H. Horton earlier this year and my Kindergarten class asked me to return so they could READ TO ME! Well guess what…. I returned today and every student read a book and demonstrated their mastery and excellence!!!! Their confidence took me aback but it shouldn’t have because they are being nurtured by the VERY BEST!!!!!!
Our scholars are eager to learn and are PROUD of the strides they have made. I am so, so, so proud of you all! Days like today remind me why I am here.
I want to thank Principal Hamlet, Ms. Almeida, Ms. Acevedo & Ms. Ricca for all of the work they do to ensure our students reach their highest potential 📚🍎

I want to thank Butterfly Dreamz for inviting me to share some time and space with their youth leadership cohort. It was so inspiring to hear from all the phenomenal young women, and it was truly the highlight of my weekend!
My board colleague, Flohisha Johnson-Hill, and I participated in the discussions the young leaders were having around inequities in women’s healthcare. We were able to highlight the different civic and political engagement pathways that catalyze critical changes in healthcare policy, and help amplify awareness around these issues.
Butterfly Dreamz equips girls to be confident leaders and supports them in achieving their dreams through mentorship, holistic leadership development, and intergenerational community action, and I’m so happy that we were able to support them in this all too important work.
We should call a public health emergency on the gun violence plaguing our schools and communities! Praying for the families of the victims and the entire Covenant School community who will never see their lost ones ever again.
The three students who were shot and killed at Covenant School were all 9 years old, the Metro Nashville Police Department said in a tweet Monday.
The Newark Board of Education’s 2nd Annual Women’s Leadership Conference “Celebrating the Women Who Tell Our Stories”, led by our phenomenal Deputy Superintendent, Nicole T.

Happy Dominican Independence Day 🇩🇴
I want to take this opportunity to comment on a fact that is oftentimes buried and forgotten. We liberated ourselves from Spanish colonial rule on November 9, 1821. This date is just as important as February 27, 1844 when we declared ourselves a free republic. True freedom only became possible when we freed ourselves from from the chains of colonialism.
Christopher Columbus landed in Santo Domingo when he embarked on his first voyage to the Americas in 1492. The colonization of Quisqueya began as he established the colony of Santo Domingo, the oldest European settlement in the Americas.
We would be under European colonial rule for 329 years.
I celebrate our absolute independence but I also celebrate and remember November 9, 1821.
Fun fact: Quisqueya or Kiskeya is one of the names of Hispaniola Island believed to mean "Mother of All Lands" in the Taíno language.
As the Newark Board of Education wraps up its Black History Month’s programming and events, I'd like to take the opportunity to highlight last night's efforts. In partnership with the Newark-based Aurway Repertory Theatre, we hosted an experience centered on Black culture, history, and celebration: “We Got So Far To Go: An African American Freedom Journey” is a powerful piece that honors the legacies of Harriet Tubman & Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Last night served as a reminder to us all that schools are much more than academic centers. Schools serve as cultural anchors in our communities. They anchor our communities through connection, tradition and culture. The content we teach, the programming we provide, and the activities we host must reflect our roots and celebrate our triumphs.

A medida que el distrito concluye sus eventos del Mes de la Herencia Latina, me gustaría aprovechar la oportunidad para destacar los esfuerzos de anoche. En conjunto con Hispanic American Foundation y Don Mike Rodríguez, presentamos Reportorio Espanol y su maravillosa obra de teatro: En el Tiempo de las Mariposas 🦋
Quiero darle las gracias a nuestros talentosos estudiantes, First Avenue Elementary School, Arts High School, Reportorio Español y Hispanic American Foundation por celebrar nuestra comunidad *con* nuestra comunidad.
Anoche sirvió de recordatorio de que las escuelas son mucho más que centros académicos. Las escuelas sirven como anclas culturales en nuestras comunidades. Anclan nuestras comunidades a través de la conexión, la tradición y la cultura.
El contenido que enseñamos, la programación que brindamos y las actividades que organizamos deben reflejar nuestras raíces.
